electron microscopy of synaptonemal complexes in semithin sections.the technique of osmium tetroxide fixation followed by a treatment with p-phenylenediamine was applied to mouse testes in order to analyze pachytene nuclei. observation of epon semithin sections (0.25--0.5 micrometer) in conventional electron microscopy revealed the presence of positively stained synaptonemal complexes surrounded by unstained chromatin. the present results show that by using this method a suitable contrast and resolution can be achieved for semithin sections, which facilitates t ...1979156471
suppressor t cells regulate the cytolytic t lymphocyte response to syngeneic tumors induced by murine sarcoma virus (msv) in the mouse.studies were designed to analyze the immune activities of spleen cells from mice previously injected with murine sarcoma virus (msv) and undergoing the processes of msv tumor growth and rejection. fractionation of msv-primed spleen cells according to cell size by velocity sedimentation at unit gravity showed that msv-specific cytolytic t lymphocytes (ctl) generated in vivo underwent an apparent transition in size from large to small cells as the tumor regressed. the majority of ctl precursors, h ...1979156765
deoxyribonucleic acid sequence homologies among bacterial insertion sequence elements and genomes of various organisms.plasmid and phage deoxyribonucleic acid (dna) harboring bacterial insertion sequence (is) elements is1, is2, and is5 were characterized and used as probes to detect homologous sequences in various procaryotic and eucaryotic genomes. the hybridization method used permits the detection of sequences partially homologous to the elements. hybridization of the is-containing probes to each other revealed a region of limited homology between is1 and is2. homologous sequences were then detected by comput ...1979159291

feedback regulation of 25-hydroxycholecalciferol metabolism by vitamin d3.1. in vitamin d-deficient chicks both vitamin d3 and 1alpha-hydroxycholecalciferol markedly decrease renal 1-hydroxylase activity and induce 24-hydroxylase activity. 2. actinomycin d abolishes both effects. 3. these results are consistent with feedback regulation of vitamin d3 metabolism by a direct nuclear action of the vitamin or its metabolites on the kidney cells.1975163720
regulation of human chorionic gonadotropin (hcg) secretion by serum and dibutyryl cyclic amp in malignant trophoblast cells in vitro.human chorionic gonadotropin (hcg) secretion was studied in human malignant trophoblast cells (jar line) in continuous culture. radioimmunoassayable hcg in the cells and in the daily culture fluid was increased for at least 3 days by 10% newborn calf serum and by 1 mn n-6, 0-2'-dibutyryl cyclic adenosine 3', 5'-monophosphoric acid (dbcamp) plus 1 mm theorphylline. incubation of the cells in the presence of serum, dbcamp and theorphylline resulted in additive stimulation of hcg secretion after 1 ...1975163842
protein deficiency in carbon tetrachloride-induced hepatic lesions.the influence of protein deficiency on the hepatotoxicity of carbon tetrachloride (ccl4) was investigated in a group of rhesus monkeys. animals fed a protein-rich diet served as controls. the results indicate that protein-deficiency protects the liver against acute hepatotoxicity of this drug. the protective effect is abolished if the animals are administered phenobarbital prior to the administration of ccl4. the protective action is due to a reduction, in protein deficiency, of the endoplas ...1975164171
the biogenesis of mitochondrial membranes in the yeast saccharomyces cerevisiae.membrane lipids of yeast mitochondria have been enriched by growing yeast cells in minimal medium supplemented with specific unsaturated fatty acids as the sole lipid supplement. using the activity of marker enzymes for the outer (kynurenine hydroxylase) and inner (cytochrome c oxidase and oligomycin-sensitive atpase) mitochondrial membranes, arrhenius plots have been constructed using both promitochondria and mitochondria obtained from o2-adapting cells in the presence of a second unsaturated f ...1975164216

cyclic adenosine 3':5'-monophosphate and inhibition of deoxyribonucleic acid synthesis in vitro.results are presented which suggest that inhibition of tritiated thymidine incorporation into the deoxyribonucleic acid of bone marrow in vitro by high concentrations of cyclic adenosine 3':5'-monophosphate is pharmacological in nature, and thus apparently unrelated to the physiological actions of camp.1975165140
hydrophobic interactions of the apo-gln-i polypeptide component of human high density serum lipoprotein.apo-gln-i, the major polypeptide component of human serum high density lipoprotein, has four noninteracting hydrophobic sites which associate with alkanes, anionic detergents, and cationic detergents. hexane and octane bind to these sites with association constants of 6.8 times 10-2 and 1.8 times 10-4 liters/mol, respectively, and compete with the anionic detergent, sodium dodecyl sulfate (c12oso3-minus), at low detergent ligand binding ratios (i.e. smaller than or equal to 1.0 mol of c12oso3-mi ...1975165177
regulation of adenosine 3' :5'-monophosphate efflux from rat glioma cells in culture*.rat glioma cells grown in culture secrete cyclic adenosine 3':5'-monophosphate (cyclic amp) into the culture medium following stimulation by beta-agonistic catecholamines. agents which reduced cellular atp levels such as valinomycin, oligomycin, and uncouplers of oxidative phosphorylation, inhibited cyclic amp efflux. secretion of cyclic amp was also prevented by prostaglandin a-1 and pharmacological agents including probenecid and papaverine. of the latter agents, only papaverine reduced atp le ...1975165200
thyroid-stimulating hormone and cyclic adenosine 3',5'-monophosphate in the regulation of thyroid gland function.the initial step in tsh action reflects binding of the hormone to specific receptor sites on the plasma membrane. such binding has been studied using plasma membranes, homogenates, isolated thyroid cells grown in culture, and thyroid slices. 3-h- and iodinated tsh preparations have been used; the latter have been prepared using both chloramine-t and lactoperoxidase. some of the discrepancies reported in the literature might reflect the different thyroid and hormone preparations and the variable ...1975165359
